Our weekend just got a whole lot better, as we spotted a delightful new event doing the rounds on Facebook.
The Great Gin Fair is kicking off at House Dublin on the August Bank Holiday, and the entire place will be transformed into a 'marvellous gin emporium.'
On August 6, guests will be treated to a menagerie of bespoke pop-up gin bars throughout the stunning location, and the best part about it all?
Entrance is free.
'Our Great Gin Fair will showcase more than 80 incredible gins from home and abroad for you to choose from,' reads the Facebook event.
'Our Great Gin Fair will also boast dozens of bespoke gin pop-up bars, guaranteeing that you’ll find the perfect gin for your tonic!'
'Those who are new to gin need not worry, as each one of our wonderful pop- up bars will be manned by some of the most talented bartenders (and craziest self-confessed gin aficionados) Ireland has to offer, so you can be assured they will happily point you in the right direction.'
Much like Taste of Dublin, the gin pop bars will be operating with a special currency called Junipers.
These can be purchased in House on the day.
Each measure of gin and tonic, is 7 Junipers, or €7.00
Throughout the day, guests will enjoy live music and entertainment.
This will include a series of innovative revolving talks from gin industry experts, master distillers, and brand ambassadors, as well as fun, interactive blind tastings and gin samplings.
We are so there…
